The best Whole30 recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Best Whole30 Recipes

Are you ready to kick the new year off right? In addition to drinking the healthiest green smoothies and spiralizing all the veggies, I’m digging into the archives to find the best Whole30 recipes for you.

Most of you know I’m not fond of rigid diets and detoxes, but I am a fan of Whole30 for one simple reason. It’s a temporary period of food elimination to figure out how your individual body responds to specific foods. Are you dairy-sensitive? Gluten-sensitive? Or maybe soy-sensitive?

Well, it’s hard to tell nowadays because those ingredients are woven throughout many packaged food items. That’s where Whole30 comes in.

Whole30 is a back-to-basics approach where you eliminate foods with the most common allergens and then systematically re-introduce foods one at a time to see how your body reacts.

It doesn’t mean you have to keep those foods out of your diet forever. But if you feel better without them (more energy, less bloating and acne) you can then make the choice that’s best for you.

Whole30 recipes aren’t depriving, especially when you focus on all the goodness you can still enjoy. My downloadable Whole30 Food List highlights all of the ingredients you can eat. And if you stick with the full 30-days, I guarantee you’ll not only feel healthier and more energized, you may even learn a thing or two about your body. So let’s dive in….

Thank you for sharing such great work with us will help us a lot to prepare some different dishes then the regular ones that we all are used to, I have been surfing the net for quite a long time but didn’t find any mouth-watering dishes but these recipes you shared were just fab I loved it and surely going to prepare the sweet potato toast recipe.5 stars

    1. Hi Supriya – I’m so glad you discovered Downshiftology! I hope you can enjoy all my recipes and that it will help you live onto a more healthier lifestyle :)

  3. Hello 

    I generally have a very hard time finding good recipes that are gluten-free and dairy-free, and don’t taste like a compromise, and yours are AMAZING. 

    I have tried many of them and it was an absolute success. 

    Thank you for sharing all of this for free!5 stars

    1. Hi Salome – I am so happy you found Downshiftology! I hope to bring inspiration for those who are gluten-free or diary-free :)

      1. I’m so happy I found your site, loving the recipes, just the kind of help I was looking for! Thank so much for all you do!

  4. Hi Lisa!

    I just want to thank you for your youtube videos. I’m always looking for new healthy recipes and you give me so many great ideas. Currently, your healthy eating videos are my favorite. Congratulations on your success on line. Please keep the videos coming!

  5. Hello Lisa,

    I just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying your YouTube videos. I stumbled across your whole30 “what I eat in a day”, video a couple of days ago when I was looking for whole30 re-introduction ideas for the end of this month and have been steadily working my way through the rest. I especially love your meal prep videos. You have some truly wonderful ideas for no fuss food prep, that is tasty, clean and uncomplicated. Thank you for sharing.

    I also think it’s very inspiring that you had the courage to leave your job to take time for yourself and then start your blog and YouTube channel. I’m in my forties with a job that is okay, but I don’t love it, and I’m taking time away from my family to hike the Overland Track in Tasmania next year which is something I’m very much looking forward to.

    Wishing you the best of luck.

    Kindest Regards,


    1. Hi Michelle – I’m happy you’re enjoying my recipes and videos! I’m glad my Whole30 recipes provided a little inspiration for you as well. :) Thanks for your kind words and that’s wonderful you’re hiking the Overland Track in Tasmania. It sounds like an amazing adventure and I’m sure it will reinvigorate you in more ways than you can imagine. Best wishes! x

  6. I’ve tried a lot of Zucchini and Prosciutto Egg Muffins recipes, and with this one I feel like.I finally hit gold! Full taste, beautiful colour, perfect salt, no fussy steps and done in the same amount of time (or less) as other recipes. Life changer!

    1. So thrilled you love those egg muffins. They’re definitely a favorite of mine as well! :)

  7. So glad you like the recipes Sarah! And 80% clean eating is perfect, as it leaves 20% wiggle room for indulgences. ;)

  8. Agreed with the green smoothie kick! I’m drinking one every day and I’m starting my 8th Whole30 next week! Had a few treats the past week. Ready to get back to it!

  9. SUCH an amazing collection of tasty looking meals and treats – I am always looking out for helpful meal ad menu idea lists like this, Karen

  10. Fab collection of recipes, you are making me jealous with the lamb dishes, so difficult to find here and that stew looks incredible.

      1. I’m in Eastern Hungary, farming country and we do rear lamb but the export market is so strong so it all gets sent away to our wealthier European neighbors ;)
